Hey, there appears to be a mistake on your website. The James Brown classic ic called “Papa Don’t TAKE No Mess”. While James Brown’s father may have very well been a very tidy man, the name of the song is a black colloquialism.
One who “does not take mess” refuses to accept BS or trifling from his family and children. Certainly hope this was a typo. CheersL:)
Thank you for pointing out our unfortunate typo. It has been corrected.
